We are very excited to announce that we have began our very own Archery club at school. We have had our first after school club this evening. The children have learnt how to set up the Archery range this evening following all the health and safety rules to ensure we stay safe using the equipment.
After we were all set up, the children were given a detailed demonstration of all the steps they needed to follow in order to perfect their aim. The children all did really well for their first week. Each one has been able to improve their technique just on the first session. Here are a few pictures of their first lesson.
Would you like to take part in our Archery club?

We now have two dance troupes in school who are rehearsing some new modern dance routines every Wednesday lunch time. Children from years 3-6 are practising a dance to a song from Trolls, and the children from year 1 and 2 are practising a routine to a song from Despicable Me. Keep you eyes peeled for when the children will be ready to perform. Here is a little sneak peak!
